Why the Panthers Do Not Draft A WR Early

koolkatluke are you trying to argue that drafting a WR that could help wouldn't change the dynamic of this team

Because that's bullshit a rookie WR could be a great help if we pick the right one.

EDIT: Reading your earlier posts that's exactly what you're saying.

You're saying only AJ Green/Calvin johnson/Julio Jones type WRs can help thier first years and uh

T.Y. Hilton (third round pick) : 50 Catches, 861 yards, 7 TDs

Torrey Smith (second round pick) : 50 catches, 841 yards, 7TDs

Mike Williams (fourth round pick): 65 catches, 964 yards, 11TDs

Percy Harvin (first round pick): 60 catches, 790 yards, 6TDs

just to name a few.

NYG in the first 3 rounds have pretty consistantly gone after 2 positions for the past 6 years...

DL and WR.

With the way we finish every season record wise, we will never be in a position to get the best receiver in the draft unless we trade way up. This might be the best time to get a guy and hope they reach their true potential with experience and still having Smitty around.

New GM has pretty much said what he believes in...

And that is what the NYGs are doing. Expect lots of DTs/ DEs AND WRs in the next few drafts. Big bodies and touchdown scorers

Basically, the more things change, the more things stay the same. One thing that is different though is Gettleman. From all accounts he is a master evaluator of talent, so uniting him with Ron Rivera should produce at least one or two great draft picks. I am going to have faith in whomever they pick in the first and second rounds, regardless of position.

Hurney valued LBs (4-3) and RBs.....Gettlemen values DL and WRs. They are nothing alike

So can DT, CB and O-line men all needs before WR.

I'll ask you these questions

1. Were we a top 5 scoring offense when Chud was a better Play caller?

2. Were we a good offense when our Oline was playing up to standard?

3. How many games this year did our WR's cost us?

Well he better protect the QB and get some secondary help as well.
